ok ok ok so i keep seeing all these memes about the mcelroy brothers and i am left with two questions: who are these people? and they are HILARIOUS where can i consume their content? i honestly have no idea lmao
IVE NEVER BEEN MORE EXCITED TO ANSWER A QUESTION IN MY LIFE
ok ok ok so the mcelroy brothers are these three rowdy boys called justin, travis, and griffin mcelroy, and they are some good good boys that are all delightfully funny and overall gr8 individuals.
justin is your oldest brother, editor-at-large, and seriously named his d&d character taako (pronounced like taco). his face does the squish when he laughs.
travis is your middlest brother, sexpert (maybe?), very scared of spiders, and did a hit. is a sweetheart and also has a beard. is starting a series called carrey on where he reviews jim carrey’s movies.
I was first exposed to the mcelboy content through youtube! griffin and nick (not a mcelroy but a pretty funny dude) do videos on polygon like car boys, coolgames inc, and touch the skyrim. griffin and justin do a really great series called monster factory! plus griffin also is currently doing his peacecraft series which is A+
there are also a lot of animated shorts on youtube for their podcasts and shows, if you just want to dip ur toe into their content!
another place for sweet mcelroy content are the podcasts they do! one of them is called “my brother, my brother and me” (mbmbam) and its a really fun podcast/’advice show for the modern era’ where the boys answer yahoo questions, and its been running for i think seven years!
mbmbam is through maximum fun, which has a whole host of other lovely podcasts, some of which the boys are involved in (bunker buddies, trends like these, shmanners, sawbones, and rose buddies, i wanna say thats it but i honestly have no idea). heres a nice list of them all!
another good podcast is The Adventure Zone (taz), which is a dungeons and dragons podcast that griffin DMs! it has their dad in it! its really great, and i highly recommend it even if u aren’t into d&d!
you can get all these sweet podcasts 4 free through itunes! (tho max fun has em for rss if itunes aint ur jam)
they also just released a tv show for mbmbam! you can watch one of the episodes FOR FREE on youtube, and then u can watch the rest through seeso!
and that concludes your introductory course to the mcelboys. have fun!
Feel free to add + correct something! I’m still learning about this so your help is amazing :)
I’ll cover the houses here. If you want to check your transits, here you have a tutorial by @astrologanize
Sun: focus, where you shine brighter than ever! Where the sun falls, it’ll be your main interest for a certain time. For example, Sun transiting your 11th house will focus on social life, friend groups and your dreams. Sun transiting your 6th house will be focused on routine and getting things done, rather than dreaming and being social.
Moon: this planet’s transits are really short (2 days approximately), so its effect is more like “daily mood” than big and meaningful cycles in your life. These transits show where your emotions are focused on, and where you may be more creative. I highly recommend to check the sign where the transit Moon is in! For example, Cancer moon is transiting in your 2nd house. That’ll mean you’re a lot more attached emotionally to your material goods, and you may buy too many things during this transit. Of course, this feeling only last for like two days so next week you might regret all the useless things you’ve bought…
Mercury: this planet’s transits tend to last one month aproximately. These transits show where your mental focus is, your mental state and what kind of subjects are you up to learn. Plus, it brings a lot of energy to the house’s activities. For example, Mercury transiting the 3rd house will be a lot more witty and will seek more mental stimulation than usual. It may be difficult to stop thinking and you may jump from one thought to the next fearly quickly. This is a good time to focus on mental activities, like school or college.
Venus: this planet’s transits last about one month. This transits tend to show where you feel more confident and social. If it isn’t in a bad aspect with any natal planet, it’ll be a good transit. Depending the house transit Venus is, you may be a lot more creative and artsy.For example, Venus transiting your 5th house will make you more prone to flirting without a clear objective, more like an entertaiment than a real affair. This placement is perfect for creative activities, like drawing.
Mars: this planet’s transits last about one month. This brings a boost of energy to the activities concerned to the transited house, and may indicate what drives you during that time. For example, Mars transiting your 9th house will be eager to learn, and motivation to travel and experience new things.
The following planets have a wider orbit around the sun, therefore, they stay longer in each house. Personally, I think their effects are way more crucial than, for example, the moon’s.
Saturn: this planet’s transits last about one or two years. It is mostly seen as a hard aspect because it shows where one have work to do in order to reach a goal, where we don’t feel enough and it sometimes lead to insecurity and limitations. For example, Saturn transiting in the 10th house can make you feel useless in your career and vulnerable in front of others, and you might feel your work isn’t rewarded. This is a good time to work harder than ever and find holes in your public image and goals.
Jupiter: this planet’s transits last for one year. It shows where you find yourself luckier and happier, and what will help you to expand your life. This is generally seen as a good transit, not matter what kind of aspects it has with your natal planets. For example, Jupiter in the 12th house finds happiness and expansion through relaxing and spiritual ways, like meditation. This is a good time to analyze yourself and let your ego wash away.
Uranus: this planet spends many years in one house and sign. It brings change and mental energy. Change is abrupt and may be caused by a change of mentality or plain boredom. Uranus is here to start new things, to dare and to challenge you. For example, if Uranus is in your 1st house, you may feel you need to change your appearence and your identity may be challenged. This is a good time to change your style and re-create yourself.
this planet spends many years in one house and sign.
Where it is placed, things get burried. It’s a time where you are more creative, spiritual and confused at the same time. This transit paints a certain part of your life with fantasy. If Neptune is transiting your 6th house, for example, you’ll daydreaming a lot more than you’re used to and procrastination may take over your life if you don’t control it. This is a good time to make art though.
this planet spends many years in one house and sign. Transformation is the key word for this transit. Where transit Pluto is placed, things (think about habits, cycles, etc) end in order to start new ones. Also, it can symbolize that your current habits will be transform permanently. Negative feelings may be regular in certain times. Things from the past may do a come back. For example, if Pluto is transiting your 7th house, several of your relationships and friendships may transform in something new, bad or good. Plus, some of your relationships may end and that will mean a new cycle, a “new” you. This is a good time to reevaluate your relationships and throw away the negative ones in your life.
I drew @commanderholly in a cute/witchy outfit. I was planning on drawing her in one of her Looks™ but that just…didn’t happen?
Things have been blowing up recently with YouTube and it’s genuinely upsetting. But Commander Holly is honestly such a role model. She marches, she uses her platform to speak on real issues, and she’s just an all around incredible woman. So I highly recommend watching her content, because she’s a genuinely good person with a lotta’ heart.
Hello! I thought I’d share some tips that may be useful for upcoming Law students.
-Get prepared beforehand- If you have early acces to your syllabi, I’d highly suggest you print them and gather if you can, some of the material required for each course, as well as reading them ahead of time. Law, as any other science, has its specific words and expressions, so getting your hands in some of the material beforehand will provide you with some “advantage” in terms of knowing what to expect as regards the required reading material.
-Don’t highlight- I really don’t recommend using highlighters as, when studying Law, you will be required to read a good amount of books and jurisprudence, so you might enter into a loop in which you are reading the same sentence over and over again, or going though paragraphs without really paying attention to the text, kind of like in a “robot mode”. When you finish reading, you don’t really understand in depht what you just read, but for some reason you have tons of pages colored in highlighters. Insted, just read activedly and transcrip into a summary what you think is important. This way you will easily prevent entering into “robot mode” which does not bring you any benefit at all.
-Make creative mind maps- Try making mind maps to condense large texts aswell, because in Law you will encounter many principles, and exceptions to them, so having them in a way that’s more visually appealing may be easier to learn. I said “creative” because, rather than having plenty of the same “style” of mind maps, I’d suggets giving each of them a twist, something different to remind yoursef what concepts were involved in that map, as this may trigger your visual memory aswell.
-Ask what you don’t know!- Try to always be as organized as you can, and reading before each class the required material, as well as making a quick summary of what you just read, as this will provide you with valuable material to ask about things you haven’t understood. It is almost vital that you know the meaning of the concepts and the application of the law, as well as any important facts of jusrisprudence, because you might be tested on facts that you will have to remember, as well as using the material that you’ve learned to apply it to a hypothetical case, linking plenty of concepts. So, knowing what you are talking about is crucial.
-Read the suggested material- Finally, if you can, I’d recommend reading all the material provided by your professor, because they may have suggested it for a reason. If that is not a possibility, read what’s more important, and search for jurisprudence that supports what you read, if it is not provided by the text. Having plenty of sources in hand which explain a certain topic may be very benefitial for deep understanding, specially if it is a complex one.
I hope this helped some of you in any way, good luck!
I would love it if u shared some rubber-hose cartoons!! I haven't seen any in a long time but I used to watch em as a kid, mostly Mickey Mouse tho. But with this game I've kinda fallen fully for this style?? Lol
(( YOOOOOOOO I GOT YOU FAM SINCE THIS WILL BE ALONG POST PROBABLY i will put a lot of info under the READ MORE ))
((Honestly my top favorite cartoon to watch is and i will ALWAYS recommend Flip the frog :( he is such a handsome funny toon <3 he last from 1930-1933 uvu but his late 1930′s design is the cutest and the most handsome ))
(( i made a playlist with most of his episodes available on youtube uvu you can find itHERE
I went to see Logan last night and it was absolutely brilliant. I’m always a fan of superhero films that try to break the mold a little but this is a whole new caliber of superhero film. It’s emotionally devastating, completely committed to it’s characters and it’s setting, and a beyond perfect send off for two of the longest running on screen superheroes of all time.
Its also unflinchingly violent, but if you can handle that I really couldn’t recommend it more highly. I’m gonna be thinking about what this film had to say for itself for a long time. Not just a good superhero film, a really great film that happens to have superheroes in it
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet // Becky Chambers
“All you can do, Rosemary - all any of us can do - is work to be something positive instead. That is a choice every sapient must make every day of their life. The universe is what we make of it. It’s up to you to decide what part you will play.”
I’ll skip the screaming that lasted for almost three days after I finished reading and just jump into the review.
This is the type of book that, once read, will spoil all other science fiction for you. It will spoil you, and raise your standards for what the genre can - and should - be. I laughed, I cried, and I tore through the book in three days. I already want to reread it.
*Feel good sci-fi is a rare enough thing these days, and The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet does it so well. *Excellent world building and excellent, creative alien species that are distinct, unique, and believable. *Gender, sexual, and racial diversity! And casual acceptance of such! And characters recognizing their prejudices and working to better themselves! This is a kinder universe, and it really shows in these small moments of self-reflective clarity and interspecies relations. *The book really shines in its structure - like an season arc of an old Star Trek series. It’s made up of smaller, episodic adventures that focus on character interactions and development, a found family on a spaceship traveling the stars together. *Character-driven plot is one thing, but making all of the characters believable, likeable, and individual is another.
TL:DR The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is everything good science fiction should aspire to be, with likable characters, incredible worldbuilding, and a quick paced plot. There was nothing that I didn’t absolutely love. Highly, highly recommended.
Friend: I really want to get into the Persona Series. Should I get Persona 5?
Me: *Kicks the door down*
Me: Hello yes you should get Persona 5 for the PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 It is a really good game I haven’t taken it out of my system for about a month I am on my third play through I refuse to play anything else until I have maxed out all of the characters and gotten all the trophies I have played over 90+ hours on my first play through Persona 5 is a really good game I highly recommend it if it’s your first time in the series It is so good It was love at first sight
Ok I know a lot of you are fans of the game Life is Strange so I just wanna let you all know that I highly recommend the book A Good Idea by Cristina Moracho. I’m reading it right now and so far it’s basically Life is Strange without the time travel, I’m really enjoying it.
What do you think of couples taking nudes of each other? Not in the spur of the moment (which is still good mind you), but taking the time to get good, thoughtful shots. I've tried it, and it's actually a really fun sexy bonding thing, and I recommend it highly. It can help people to see themselves through the eyes of their partner if done right, which on top of being super fuckin' hot can also be a nice self-esteem boost if someone is feeling insecure.
I know some people who do this, and I think it’s fantastic, mostly for all the reasons you already stated. It’s a good way to bond, and can getting a supremely sexy photo of your SO can help boost their confidence. Everyone is sexy and should be shown it. Plus then you got some sweet nudes of each other.
13 Reasons Why is a very raw, powerful show that I think everyone needs to watch if they can handle it. That said, though it’s very good, I won’t be blogging about it beyond this text post. It’s not the kind of thing you blog about for fun. It’s not…it shouldn’t be treated like just another tv show. It doesn’t feel right.
If you're at all interested in trying another anime, I highly recommend No. 6. The plot is interesting enough, but it's really the characters, their developments, and relationships that make the story. Also, a really sweet romance between two guys that is extremely well written! It's a little older, but there is also a complete manga and light novel to go with it! (Should be read, some scenes didn't make it into the anime unfortunately!)
I’ve heard that no.6 is a really good LGBT anime and since, as a member of that community, I’m always looking for more good LGBT content it’s definitely something I’m interested in checking out in the future!
